I'm a system administrator. This build will have many jobs, but its primary role will be to run a virtual lab environment for training and testing purposes at home. I'll be running Windows 7 Pro with VMware player. At any given point I'll be regularly running approximately 3-4 servers (2008 R2 and 2012) and 2-4 clients (basic Win7 boxes). I've got more or less the same environment running on my work machine which has less resources than this one will so...shouldn't be a problem (plus since I'm running VMware Workstation at work I can simply create my VM's there and bring them home...building in Workstation is much quicker). Secondary use will be some mild to moderate gaming. On the mild side...and this will be rediculously mild...I still love the original Halo games...I know...talking about under usage... but I'm still hopeful that we'll see a Halo 3 at some point in the nearish future. More to come when I find time. I'm being summoned.
